Sassy Girl...Before And After

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you are enjoying this nice long weekend. We had a big cookout over here last night with some of our family. It was alot of fun...Kevin cooked the best burgers ever! He is so good at grilling on that firepit.



I just had to do a post to show of my fur baby before and after her haircut. I have always groomed her myself. She is so good and just sits there quietly while I chop on her hair. As you can see, she was desparately in need of a good summer cut. Her hair was way too long and I was sick of chasing hair balls! lol... After about an hour, this is what she looked like...Ahhh, now she feels better and can take a nap! She loves getting up on the sofa on those black pillows...of course white hair does NOT show up on black! lol ;)



She had to have a pretty bow, so I made one out of some cute paw ribbon I had. Now she's complete!



That's my Sassy Girl! She is very loved!!



I am linking to Between Naps On the Porch for Met Monday. I hope she accepts dog makeovers!


Have a wonderful Memorial day...let's remember the soldiers who have died so that we can be free...

She is too cute, Kristen! I sometimes wish I could trim up my Husky, but I don't think that would work out well. She is losing her winter coat now and there are fluffs of hair everywhere!

Oh Sassy is soooo cute!! Love the haircut!!

I groom all 3 of our "pups"! I always say I'm going to "stay on top of things" and groom them before they get too long...but something else always seems to creep up!

Omigosh how precious Kristen! Just love the bow! I know what you mean about the white hair - I feel like all I do is sweep up dog hair!
Have a great Memorial Day!

Kim

Sassy Girl looks precious, I know Boo would love to meet her. I wish I could groom Boo, he costs me about $60 every time I take him to the groomer - he has more hair appointments than I do!!!
